A temporary weight restriction is currently applied on the Île-Ducharme Bridge until reinforcement work is completed.
Please respect the signs in place.
Weight restrictions on the Île Bélair Bridge (R-117 – Labelle Blvd.)
The Ministry of Transport, Urban Mobility and Electrification of Transportation advises the public, truckers in particular, that weight restrictions will be implemented begining on august 10 in the Île Bélair Bridge located north of Marius-Dufresne Bridge on Route 117.
This measure is required in order to maintain the structure’s functionality. It should be noted that the condition of the bridge does not in any way compromise the safety of users.
Weight restrictions based on the type of vehicle
The following vehicles will no longer be allowed to drive over the bridge:
- single-unit motor vehicles weighing more than 18 tons
- double-unit motor vehicles weighing more than 26 tons
- motor vehicles consisting of more than two units and weighing more than 34 tons.
Work on the structure is being planned. This work will seek to limit repercussions for road-users in this sector.
Between 2016 and 2018, the Québec Ministry of Transport, Urban Mobility and Electrification of Transportation will be investing a total of $4.7 billion on Québec’s road network, with more than 2,100 active work sites.
